Blogging soley because of boredom has become itself boring – hence, my posting frequency has tanked significantly. But, blogging as a means of therapy – I know, that sounds overdrammatic – is awesome. Here’s one of the most therapeutic posts I’ve ever written.
This posting will end up being equally as therapeutic.
The below rant is my part of a text message conversation recently had with a friend (Democrat) who was upset about the midterm election results…
Dems will definitely be ok (nationwide) in 2-6 years. Economic and general direction of country is a mirror image of 94. But Clinton lost both chambers then.
Clinton took crap in 1993/1994 for the stimulus needed after bush 1. bush 2 had 2x his father’s time to ruin our country. That said, a much bigger stimulus was used now but I predict an economic boom larger than Clinton’s. Assuming Obama runs and wins again.
Dems got all the “controversial” stuff passed. Now they put their feet up for 2 years and watch the effectiveness of their plans work out.
Legislatively this current congress should get a ton done between now and January since senators like Blanche Lincoln (rightfully) lost and they don’t have to worry about saving their job by voting more conservative. We’ll see though.
[her response regarding the ass kicking dems took in Michigan]
The last thing MI needs is to become more conservative by cutting spending on well founded projects. The state is already drastically behind the times as it is. What’s next – No new computers…you get a typewriter instead?
Adding a long overdue open letter to Rick Snyder…
You earned my vote – congrats. No, seriously – that’s saying a lot. I can’t stand republicans and rarely vote for them. However, Virg was a horrible candidate and Michigan’s democrats have had absolutely NO VISION – especially from 2000-2006/7.
But, you won’t earn my vote again in 2014 if you infuse your ridiculous social/moral opinions into the governor’s office. Nobody acting in the best interest of Michigan wants to hear about your insane position against stem cell research. Nobody acting in the best interest of Michigan wants to hear that you stupidly think marriage is only meant to be between a man and a woman. Nobody acting in the best interest of Michigan wants to hear your idiotic position that our government has a say over a woman’s womb.
The only thing people acting in the best interest of Michigan care about are JOBS. That’s it. JOBS.
Best of Luck,
